Get help with home heating costs

With the cold winter months upon us, you’ve probably seen an increase on your utility bill. The good news is there is a heating assistance program that helps people with their home heating costs and heating-related emergencies called LEAP. The program helps people who qualify get financial relief from winter’s high heat expenses. You may also be eligible to receive free furnace tune-ups, insulation and other weatherization services.

The LEAP application process is simple. Simply call 1-866-HEAT-HELP, request an application, fill it out, and mail it back to us. LEAP accepts applications Nov. 1 – April 30 each year.
